Biography

My Loving Eyes Fastened is a soulful acoustic alternative rock project with an aggressive edge created by singer/songwriter Jacob Addicott. Coming from a hard rock background, My Loving Eyes Fastened has the power of a great rock band going unplugged. Addicott’s poetics gives the style mysticism, interweaving a beauty and a dark rage to help create his sound. With his voice, soulfulness, and hard rock background, Addicott, 23, brings versatility to the singer/songwriter genre with his new project called My Loving Eyes Fastened.

--You can take the boy from the rock, but not the rock from the boy--

In 2004, Addicott created and fronted a hard melodic rock band called Tragedy of Giving out of Gainesville. Tragedy of Giving’s song “Sink Slow” was featured on a Showtime Original episode of ‘Sleeper Cell’ in December of 2005. Further refining his distinctive approach and wanting something more, Addicott left Tragedy of Giving and began anew.

--If it’s holding your soul, you’ve got to let it go--

Jacob Addicott moved out to the west coast where he began working with producer Adam Rossi in Palo Alto, CA. Without going soft rock and without repeating Tragedy of Giving, Addicott showcases that he has found his own sound through the artistry of My Loving Eyes Fastened.

--This is it!--

This is the first studio EP from My Loving Eyes Fastened. The album is produced by Adam Rossi and features great musicians who are all linked to some of Addicott’s most influential artists. The album features drummers Steve Bowman (from The Counting Crows -August and Everything After) and Matt Lucich (who has worked with Snake River Conspiracy and Queensryche). Also featured are slide guitarist Bruce Kaphan (who has worked with John Lee Hooker, Jewel, David Byrne, and Jellyfish) and bassist, Mark Calderon (who has performed and recorded with Wycleff Jean of the Fugees, Carter Beauford of Dave Matthews Band, and Dr. John).

Lyrics

Dry Land

Written By: Jacob Addicott

I must have been led astray
Away from your loveliest ways
I must be in some other place
They look like you but they watch me dig my own grave
--I've been walkin' for several days and
I've been lookin' around
All I can say is that I have not struck anything
Alls I can say is, "This is dry Land. Heartless, dry Land"

I have been searching for days
I can't wait till I finally find you
Then I will quench all of this
My love is strong, but I'm growin' so tired
--I've been walkin' for several days and
I've been lookin' around
All I can say is that I have not struck anything
Alls I can say is, "This is dry Land. Heartless, dry Land"

So Fluid

Written By: Jacob Addicott

I don't mean to scare you
It's just my demons
Look Away
Angel, I'm sorry, but I need you
Don't be afraid of me
-There's something evil in me
Oh, it's so fluid
Get it out, Get it out!
-I used to be so pretty
Now they can't see it
Get it out, Get it out

The town they are afraid now
They've grown so violent
There's a crowd
And a fire
Angel, I'm sorry, but I need you

-There's something evil in me
Oh, it's so fluid
Get it out, Get it out!
-I used to be so pretty
Now they can't see it
Get it out, Get it out

Complicated Fantasy

Written By: Jacob Addicott

Hey, Hey Ma'am what do you think?
What do we do when the truth comes out, now?
So, the past has you by the throat
And it's pushing my chest straight in
Right now
Baby, where does forgiveness lie
In the green-brown halo of your eyes
I am lost

I believe...it's so much more than a dream
Such a Complicated Fantasy

So, I'm trying to figure it out
How to fight these demons off
But, this paradigm shifted me and it's made it hard to breathe out
Beautiful, will these wounds ever heal
And if they won't, god, make them numb

I believe...it's so much more than a dream
Such a Complicated Fantasy

-Forgiveness and pain...beauty and me--all these things complicate this fantasy-

Angel, these skeletons are so thick
And could you let go of my ghosts somehow
Beautiful, will these wounds ever heal?
If they won't, god, make them numb

I believe...it's so much more than a dream
Such a Complicated Fantasy
